MTP in Far Manager

Remember me complaining about Far not supporting MTP protocol, rendering it useless while working with most modern USB devices?


A plugin finally came out for Far Manager, enabling MTP support. Download it, unpack to the Plugins folder, connect your device, restart Far and here it is! All file operations work. Well yes the plugin is still very raw, the interface is not that solid and it is not Plug-n-Play, meaning if you connected your device when Far is already running, it won’t recognize it, so you have to restart the file manager or open another one. But still this is a breakthrough. I can finally work with files my old school way of choice.
